I've made a terrible mistake

I am very uncomfortable right now. I just got back from seeing 'Snakes on a Plane' and realized that it may not have been a good idea to face my fear of snakes by watching this movie.

Going in, I was very excited to start the show. Then a thought crossed my mind. "Wouldn't it be ironic if someone let snakes loose in the theatre during the show?" From the second preview my feet didn't leave the back of the chair in front of me. Not to mention that it is really dark in those theatres.

And another thing. Surround sound with snakes really makes it sound like snakes are under your chair. At least once during the movie I had to cover my mouth because I was moaning with fear. The other time I covered my mouth was when a woman got bit on the tongue when she was screaming. That, however, was just a knee jerk reaction.

I will say that I was pleased with the movie and it wasn't nearly as ridiculous as I expected it to be. I am pretty sure that sleeping won't be in the cards for me this weekend though.

That is all,

Newt

The Theater. It's black, it's boxy... it's a black box!

Remember that? Oh the good times when we thought Hollywood Theaters was the greatest thing to ever come to Midland, Texas...

Trinity you are braver than I am, there is no way that I would go see that movie I am so scared of snakes that I cant even look at one on tv. I hope you had a good night sleep.

Love Mom-in-law

I read in the news somewhere that on opening night of that movie someone really did let snakes out in the theater. I don't remember where so at lest you were not in that theater. What it really not a bad movie? That seems shocking.
